Various cultures have left their imprint on history through their great monuments and buildings, such as the Egyptian pyramids, the Parthenon in Athens, the Roman Pantheon, and Hagia Sophia in the “New Rome,” Constantinople. These great structures were by “master builders” who developed the project concept, designed the appearance and technical details of the finished building or monument, and mobilized the resources needed to realize the final structure. This classical approach was used to build the great castles and cathedrals of the Middle Ages, the palaces of the Renaissance, and the civil engineering infrastructure of the industrial revolution. Great architects and engineers followed an integrated process of conception, design, and construction. This integrated construction process persisted through the end of the nineteenth century, when the Roebling family (John, Washington, and Emily) designed and built the Brooklyn Bridge.
